Sigur Ros are set to release their brand new album, 'Kveikur', on June 17.

The band will support the release with a short UK and Ireland arena tour, which will include their biggest ever UK headline show to date at London's Wembley Arena on November 21.

They will also play Dublin's O2 Arena on November 16, Nottingham Arena on November 19 and the Brighton Centre on November 20.

Scroll down to watch the Andrew Huang directed video for 'Brennisteinn', the first track to be taken from 'Kveikur'.

Sigur Ros recently started selling custom-made scented candles through their online store.

Named after a track on 2012's 'Valtari' album, the Varðeldur candle has the aroma of "driftwood campfire". Priced at $23.50 (£14.99), the candle is described as follows:

"The smoky, slightly briny smell of a flotsam campfire on a distant black beach under a wan midnight sun. And, most recently, the smell of Sigur Rós's studio, while they go about the quasi-mystical business of making the magic happen. Specially developed to the band's olfactory specifications, this candle burns for 35 evocative hours of "instant Iceland", or something like that."

Sigur Ros play:

Dublin O2 Arena (November 16)
Nottingham Arena (19)
Brighton Centre (20)
London Wembley Arena (21)
